7. The Lord, Jehovah: King Forever!

Text:  “The Lord sitteth upon the flood (the nations of the world); yea, the Lord sitteth King forever.”

                                                                                                                   Psalm 29:10.

          “And in the days of these kings shall the God of Heaven set up a Kingdom (Christ‘s Kingdom), which shall never be destroyed; and the Kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.”
                                                                                                                    Daniel 2:44.

Good morning, Christian subject of the everlasting King!  Throughout the nations of the world today we find many temporal kingdoms, and many temporal rulers and kings.  However, while earthly kingdoms and kings may rise and fall, come and then go - the Kingdom of Christ Jesus, our Saviour and Lord, shall continue Supreme forever.  Hallelujah!  We worship and praise Thee, King Jesus; King of all kings, and Lord of all lords.  Glory to Thy Name!

All true, Spiritually regenerate, Christians; all ‘born again’ of God the Spirit into Christ’s Kingdom, should always be ready to cry out from our hearts: “Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the Heaven and in the earth is Thine; Thine is the Kingdom, O Lord, and Thou art exalted as Head above all.”  (1 Chronicles 29:11) 

Let us shout this from the rooftops right now wherever in the world we may be!   Glory to the Lamb, our King of kings!  Our God reigns over all!  Hallelujah!

Is it not literally ‘wonderful’ to know that you and I - as Spiritually regenerate Christians - have been blessed of God with Salvation in Christ Jesus, and permitted to be part of His Eternal Kingdom?  Amazing grace indeed, my friend!

Let us pray all the more, and witness all the more, to those around us day by day who are not presently subjects of Christ’s Kingdom.  If we love the lost with the love of Christ Jesus, we will desire deeply that they too might enter His Kingdom.  If we truly love those still lost in sin, we should be bold enough, and honest enough, to tell them God’s message of truth - that they too might turn from their sin, repent, and receive Christ as their Eternal Saviour and King.  (Romans 10:13)

“Jesus answered and said unto him (Nicodemus), Verily, verily (truly, truly), I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God.”  (John 3:3)

Praise and all thanks be to God, for He has provided this great Salvation for us - through the Cross of Christ Jesus, His only begotten Son, our Saviour and Lord.

Verse 10.  “The Lord sitteth upon the flood.  The ‘flood’ here mentioned is the nations of the world, and the Lord God Jehovah, the Creator of the world, sitteth (sits, and continually sits) as Supreme Lord and Ruler over all the nations.  Our God reigns.

Verse 10.  “The Lord sitteth.  A temporal king can only reign when he sits upon the throne of territorial authority, in any given land.  He sits, to show his subjects that his war to win the kingdom is now accomplished; that he is now resting in the seat of total lordship and authority over his temporal subjects.

King Jesus Christ is even at this moment seated ‘…on the right hand of God…’ His Father - showing that His work of Eternal Salvation is totally accomplished; that His Victory war cry from the Cross is fully vindicated; that He has redeemed ‘…His people from their sins…’  Hallelujah!  We honour Thee, King Jesus Christ!  Glory to Thy Name!

“When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar; He said, It is finished: and He bowed His head, and gave up the ghost.”  (John 19:30)

“So then after the Lord had spoken unto them (the eleven disciples), He was received up into Heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.  And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the Word with signs following.  Amen.”  (Mark 16:19-20)

Throughout the world today, we find gross sin and Sodomy being promoted militantly across our sin-soiled nations.  Every perversion is applauded as being ‘right’; every smear and insult of the Holy Name of our Lord, Jesus Christ, is written into television soap operas and movies; so much so that even the church worldwide seems to be steeped in apostasy and gross unbelief.  It seems like the kingdom of Satan, the arch-deceiver, is prevailing, and sincere, Bible-believing Christians are subject to the most vile taunts and ’legal’ restrictions.  However, all this has already been prophesied in God’s Word - the Holy Bible - and it will all be judged by the Lord when He returns for us, ’His people’.

Remember the fate of Sodom and Gomorrah!  (Genesis 19:24-29)

“But that which ye have already hold fast until I (Christ Jesus) come.  And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers; even as I received of My Father.”  (Revelation 2:25-27)

Thought:  Rejoice, Christian subject!  “The Lord sitteth upon the flood; yea, the Lord sitteth King forever.”  Our Lord God is in Sovereign Control of all things.
